You may be right.

>From another stand point, one could see it as a service using under the 
cover the Jetty HTTP server features. The WebDAV capabilities are covered by 
the Tomcat WebDAV servlet. After having considered the RFC2518, namely "HTTP 
Extensions for Distributed Authoring -- WEBDAV", I have decided to plug the 
Tomcat implementation as a full re-implementation would not have been so 
simple (e.g. the Tomcat implementation, in its 5.0.16 revision, has a bug 
which does not allow to move or rename a file).

This service holds together these two features. I think that one could use 
it to distribute components to Geronimo.

I also think that Geronimo could offer out-of the box a HTTP service in 
order to mount servlets, which does not require the full servlet 
specifications. For instance, one could mount RPC servlets for various 
reasons (Axis integration?).

For these reasons, and especially the "component distributions" reason, I 
would like to keep it in Geronimo. However, I am ready to move it to another 
location; just let me know where.
